Background information

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) is the UK’s newest purpose built international airport, having commenced operation in April 2005 on the site of the former RAF Finningley air base. 

Significant recent investment of over £100 million includes a brand new terminal. With one of the UK’s longest runways, Doncaster Sheffield Airport has the capacity to handle all types of international aviation including charter, scheduled, long haul, freight, general and business aviation. 

A comprehensive public consultation of the Airport’s Draft Master Plan was conducted in 2009. The Draft Master Plan outlines the vision for future development of the airport, including the potential to grow to handle over 10 million annual passengers by 2030. Feedback received from the public consultation showed considerable support for these plans. 

Doncaster Sheffield Airport continues to develop further services and increase the range of destinations as it looks to become the airport of choice for passengers in the South Yorkshire and Sheffield City Region.
